    I had the opportunity to attend this workshop conducted by Dr. Chandan Bose. Apart from running OpenFOAM in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and preparing case files for numerical simulations, we also had to opportunity to learn and understand the source code of OpenFOAM which can be customised as well.
